Antarctica, Getting Layered


With our first Antarctica landing just moments away it is time to get dressed for the occasion and “I don't have a thing to wear”. OMG!

As we have been briefed earlier, part of staying comfortable on our outings is to dress using a layered approach. On the zodiacs we will be facing the elements and will need to do all we can to stay dry and warm.



CAN 019 The parka provided by Quark is comfortable but I will have several layers of clothing on beneath it.

Once dressed a special zodiac life vest is also worn.



All dressed except for shoes, I head to the “Mud Room” where my waterproof boots I tried on earlier are waiting for me. I think like me they are ready to do some walking.
